In this episode, Chef Alex Downing, who long time listeners of the SCS Podcast will remember as my Sous Chef at Stella Restaurant. After I left Stella a few years ago, Alex took over as the Executive Chef.

He just recently moved on from Stella to become the Executive Chef of Ranchera Restaurant & Country Club in Reno. NV.

We talk about his progression from a young cook to a fine dining chef, how the transition from fine dining to catering has been, and what his plans are for the future.

Also joined in studio by Renaissance Reno Chef de Cuisine Sean Munshaw.
